Three top Wall Street analysts reveal enduring lessons in sustainable success from the great industrial titans--the high-tech companies of their day--to the disruptors that now dominate the economy.

Before Silicon Valley disrupted the world with new technologies and business models, America's industrial giants paved the way. Companies like General Electric, United Technologies, and Caterpillar were the Google and Amazon of their day, setting gold standards in innovation, growth, and profitability. Today's leaders can learn a great deal from their successes, as well as their missteps. In this essential guide, three veteran Wall Street analysts reveal timeless lessons from the titans of industry--and offer battle-tested survival tactics for an ever-changing world. You'll learn:



how GE became the largest company on earth--only for a culture of arrogance to set in motion the largest collapse in history
how Boeing reassessed risks, raised profits--and tragically lost its balance
how Danaher avoided the pitfalls of tremendous success--by continually reinventing itself
how Honeywell experienced a near-fatal cultural breakdown--and executed a flawless turnaround
how Caterpillar relied too much on forecasting, lost billions--and rallied by recommitting to the basics


Filled with illuminating case studies and brilliant in-depth analysis, this invaluable book provides a multitude of insights that will help you weather market upheavals, adapt to disruptions, and optimize your resources to your best advantage. You'll learn hard-won lessons in innovation, growth, resilience, and operational excellence, as well as the time-proven fundamentals of continuous improvement for lasting success. In the end, you'll have your own personal toolbox of useful takeaways from more than a century's worth of data, experience, wisdom, and can-do spirit, courtesy of some of the greatest business enterprises of all time. This is how manufacturers survived the first disruptors of technology--and how today's giants can survive and thrive during continuous cycles of disruption.

Your organization is capable of higher performance than you imagined possible when you shift to Real Flow.

Business leaders have seen it before. Teams that should be achieving great work with ease are caught in a wild frenzy of competing priorities. Gradually their people suffer burnout, innovation evaporates, and time and energy are wasted on the wrong problems.

Thanks to this organizational multitasking, their organization is flooding from the pressure to do it all. But there is an unexpected solution to achieve high performance once again.
Organizational agility expert Brandi Olson brings front and center what happens when an organization chases too many priorities simultaneously. Featuring 140 interviews with organizational leaders, Real Flow demonstrates the principles of flow that will create the environment teams need to achieve and sustain high performance. Integrating cognitive science, organizational agility, and lean principles, this is your guide to deliver exceptional value and enable people to be happy, healthy, and engaged in their work.
Discover:
● The costly link between competing priorities, multitasking, and burnout and why no amount of vacation, self-care, or team-building activities will solve it.
● How to embrace the ecosystem paradigm and the direct impact it has on an organization’s ability to adapt, change, and thrive.
● Strategies to remedy the burnout problem that don’t involve doing less, expecting less, or shrinking the to-do list.
● How to redefine performance to maximize human potential for the long term over the short term and what that will do for your teams.
● The essential practice of limiting work in progress to improve the flow of value, plus the radical effect it has on solving the challenges your organization is facing.

Leaders don’t need to choose between good work and their teams’ well-being. Leading a high-performance organization depends on happy, healthy people. Read Real Flow and cultivate an evidence-driven approach to design a high-performing, agile organization, improve employee retention, and stop the burnout for good.
